What a ‘saga’. Neighbours can be a real pain. We have had some awful ones but also some truly great ones as well. Will watch for the headlines on the news to see the outcome of this one Karen Your neighbour sounded really beastly Elle pain in the proverbial! You lot certainly make me smile - how can my family say bird watching is boring. Sue
Haven't a clue Sue, Tried to edit it for you but still isn't working with me even editing it. Maybe the site is updating and some of the smileys are having trouble showing at time you posted, don't know I'll see what its like later. the ones you used seem to be working fine in my post though so its strange.
EDIT - Found out the problem Sue, It seems to be all the forums "own" emojis that aren't working which is the top 3 layers down to the dancing banana, I am guessing it must be a site problem which will probably sort itself out. Best using none of the original site ones for now because if you use one them it stops all the emojis in your post working goodness knows why.
Been an eventful morning, a bumblebee ventured into the tree box and had a good gander round, moments later a BT decided to take a look just as he was going in bumblebee came out and they clashed heads didnt put him off he went in and led the female, they came back about 20 minutes later and had another look, think it could be same male going next door with a another female and bringing his other to the tree box,
Morning all from Yorkshire. Well despite the neighbours box getting a lot of attention, it seems the tree box may still be in the running, lots of visits yesterday and this morning by a pair, seems to be a lot of checking the outside of the box especially the side of the box as well as chipping inside.
Karen, Is that your way of saying, I climbed the fence and ragged the box down or I learnt how to start a fire quickly the fence and box is now gone! On a serious note glad the visits have started again.
Right I think I have figured out two pairs that have been visiting the tree box, PAIR 1: Female with Speck and Male with no blemishes(speck and no blem I refer them to.) PAIR 2: Male with blur on left cheek line and female with no blur(Leftie and no blur) All of them I have seen visit right from January, but it has taken time to see who was with who and who is male and female, but going over photos and notes etc, these are I think two main pairs. It appears Speck and No blem are more interested in the neighbours box but have shown some interest in the tree box and Speck has given it a nest wriggle too. Leftie and No blur have been visiting the tree box quite frequently and No blur has given it nest wriggles too. So over the coming days I am watching and taking note to see who goes where.
Thanks Elle and Suep, leftie and speck may stick but will perhaps change the others. lol It was just so I could put a tag to them while sussing them out so to speak, I did say if I get a pair in the tree box which is in memory of my mum I would call the female June after her. So will see how things develop.
That's very clever Karen I'm hopeless at telling one from the other. I think another roller coaster ride coming your way soon? I see it's Boulder's turn now as I've just turned the calendar this morning - such a handsome brute.
Haha yes Boulder the little bounder! Its fairly quiet here today, quite cool and cloudy, they have been to feed but I have missed any action in the boxes when I went shopping this morning between 9 and 10.
Morning all from a very windy North Yorks. Lots of action on Saturday in the tree box, nothing yesterday but had a visit this morning. Moments after the Sparrowhawk had left The main visits are by Speck and this handsome chap who I penned as No blem at first but have now called him Shorty as his chest stripe is so short compared to others, he spent quite a few minutes pecking inside around the hole. But I still think they visit next doors too.
